UManitoba, UWindsor, YorkU partner to establish Public Education Exchange

The University of Manitoba, the University of Windsor, and York University have partnered with the Canadian Teachers’ Federation, the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation, and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives to establish a new initiative that advocates for robust public education systems. The Public Education Exchange (PEX) brings together collaborators, researchers, and advocates with the aim of making research more available, providing policymakers with valuable insights, and engaging the public. “We believe in highlighting the successes and potentials of public education while pointing out the potential damage caused by privatization policies,” said PEX project director Sue Winton (YorkU). “The focus is on fostering a system that embodies equity, reflects democratic values and prioritizes the collective well-being of society.”
